“I Never Get Sick”

The Angels on Earth editor-in-chief learned a valuable lesson after her illness.

I stayed home sick today, which is unusual for me. In fact the last time I felt sick enough not to go into work was the day after I loudly declared in the office hallways that “I never get sick.” As if I were somehow better than that!

Well, I was out for a week with a flu that taught me a lesson. I’m not always in control, and I don’t have to be.

For today, angels are in charge of ANGELS ON EARTH (with a little help from the human angels on staff, of course). Stay well, everybody! I think I’ll be back on my feet tomorrow.
